Genprex (NASDAQ: GNPX) is a clinical-stage, gene-therapy company focused on the advancement of its lead drug candidate, Oncoprex(TM) immunogene therapy. Oncoprex is an investigational therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). An article discussing the company reads, “Oncoprex is designed to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, to target and kill cancer cells via receptor pathways, and to stimulate natural immune responses against cancer. Oncoprex consists of the TUSC2 tumor suppressor gene encapsulated in a positively charged lipid nanoparticle. It is injected intravenously, specifically targeting cancer cells, which generally have a negative electrical charge. Once Oncoprex is taken up into a cancer cell, the TUSC2 gene is expressed in a protein that is capable of restoring certain defective functions arising in the cancer cell (http://ibn.fm/zkW0b).”

About Genprex Inc.
Genprex is a clinical-stage, gene-therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (“NSCLC”). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell-signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.Genprex.com.
